Bathroom Humor.

I posted the rough image to this panel a while back. But I thought it turned out pretty nice, so here's a little process work for you! In the photo, we have Aiden Flint and Chip Hoffmazor sharing a moment with Potty Mouth: Basement City's most celebrated commodian! And yes, that may very well be a line taken straight out of the book.

Ok, so here's another great project worth checking out! Jason Bienvenu has just launched the Kickstarter phase of his in-progress mini-series entitled The Kingdom! I highly recommend taking a gander at his video. Very professional, cool story concept, and great artwork! Boom!

Hi, Atus! How are you?


But first, I actually had someone ask me how the "dirty rabbit" was going this week. An interesting epithet for my lead character...but I think that's screaming to be turned into a club dance.

Do the dirty rabbit. Now slide left.

It's been almost a month since my last solid update, and a lot of great things have been going on - both related and unrelated to Dust Bunny. And since it's been a month, a hefty teaser is definitely in order for you patient patrons. So, please, enjoy the above image - page 64 of the book, showcasing an excerpt where Dust Bunny and Aiden Flint meet for the first time.

My hope is to have the book nearly halfway complete by the end of this month, which is a big part of why I haven't been updating as often. The pages siphon my time. However, I couldn't be happier with the story and how it's developing. Those of you that are receiving a copy of the Dust Bunny script will have the opportunity to flip through it and compare some of the original text to more appropriate alterations that I've made during the process. As well, those of you that purchased the production book will get to see where certain pages have departed from their thumbnails in order to create a better rhythm to the story. All in all, it's been really satisfying to see this project take on a life of its own.

Unrelated to Dust Bunny (but still slingin' mad flava - pun always intended), Jason Sheedy and I put together an entry for the Crash the Superbowl Doritos commercial contest. It was one day of shooting, and our commercial was just posted yesterday. You can view our entry here.

And finally,my good friend and fellow artist Derik Diaz has started work on his second graphic novel, entitled Air-Heart: Mirror's Edge. This is an episodic continuation of his first novel, Air-Heart: Taking Flight (which you can purchase here). He recently launched his Kickstarter campaign for Mirror's Edge, and is working on gathering up support for his book, while simultaneously putting the pages together.

If you would, please take a couple of minutes and check out his Kickstarter video here!
